Cranberry BBQ Chicken for your crock pot
This tasted very good. It's not fruity really. The cranberry sauce adds sweetness. You could use the jellied cranberry sauce instead of the whole berries if you really wanted.
3-4 lb of chicken pieces. (I used chicken breast tenderloins, so they cooked on low in about 3-4 hours max - VERY QUICKLY if you use chicken breasts! They will dry out of if you leave them too long)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 cup celery (omitted)
1/2 cup onion
1 (16oz) can whole berry cranberry sauce
1 cup barbecue sauce
I added 1/4 cup of flour to the crock pot at the beginning because the reviews said the sauce was too thin...doing this made the sauce the perfect thickness!
1. Combine all ingredients in slow cooker - including flour
2. Cover and bake on high for 4 hours or low for 6-8 hours (3-4 hours on low IF YOU USE BONELESS CHICKEN BREASTS)
3. Serve with rice, pasta or potatoes and a green veggie :)
So quick, easy, and a tasty crowd pleaser!
The nutrition information is accurate if you use assorted chicken pieces. There is virtually no fat at all in the recipe if you use boneless skinless chicken breasts.
